Sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik built an enormous sculpture of Santa Claus on Odisha's Puri beach. He attempted to create a world record with the sculpture, which is 30 feet high. It was made using 800 tonnes of sand and 10,000 plastic bottles. It has the message 'Ready to Change, Beat Plastic Pollution' inscribed on it. The plastic bottles will be recycled after the event.
